the smell of my desperation has become a stench


We don’t ever go balls out when it comes to Halloween decorations — no scary witch mannequins in the yard or gravestones next to the front door — but I generally try to do something subtle, maybe a few pumpkins and squashes in the center of the table. This year I’ll probably grab a few of these prints, too, and decorate the mantel over the fireplace in the family room. I love how they aren’t overtly Halloween but still convey something spooky, something mysterious. And at $17 each, they’re a much better looking keepsake than a rubber goblin.
